    i agree with alignment mechanic. he's seen/checked the car, he knows what he's talking about.

    i dont know any history how what happened and what is the cause.

    did yu check height on both sides? , if one side spring is softer than other side's spring, it will lower the car from one side , and probably cause pulling if alignment is ok.

    Thanks for your reply.Sir,both front shock absorbers are changed with new ones.so,stiffness and height is equal on bothside.only left side wheel is little rearward.i think,they called it caster in their term.anyways,alignment guy refered me to denter and denter advised me to change the whole subframe with a new one.
    is it possible that if i shift subframe little forward?then may be caster will be equal on both sides.your suggestions will be highly appreciated.

    ^^^^yes it is possible but it wont be too accurate,can be done 95% but not 100%.
    i still remeber i got my previous santro hit and the driving side wheel face the same problem,denter fixed it,i dint feel any problem later.
